Overview

Mary Ellis follows her captivating Widow’s Hope with a new story from the heart of Holmes County, Ohio. In Never Far From Home, fifteen–year–old Emma Miller finishes school, starts her own wool business, and is longing for someone to court. When the object of her affection is a handsome English sheep farmer, with a fast truck and modern methods, her deacon father, Simon, knows he has more than the farm alliance to worry about.

Emma isn’t the only one with longings in Holmes County. Her aunt Hannah wants a baby and her uncle Seth hopes he’ll reap financial rewards when he takes a risk with his harvest. But are these the dreams God has for this Amish family? With engaging interactions and thoughtful characters, Ellis weaves a story about waiting for God’s timing and discovering that the dreams planted close to home can grow a lasting harvest of hope and love.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I was so entranced by the Miller family that I read the book within 2 days. The story that Mary Ellis weaves of this Amish family is spellbinding. The struggles, fears, and determination of the characters are to be admired. So often we judge those that are different by our own standards. Ms. Ellis enlightens us as to how much we have in common regardless of our chosen paths. I look forward to reading the next installment."
--Eileen Pech

"Mary is an artist, she paints pictures with words and her words have so much meaning. I truly enjoy her books and trust she will continue the Amish love story.

"I do highly recommend Never Far from Home. It's a great love story. Keep writing Mary."

Blanche Robb

"We have a Bed and Breakfast in the heart of Ohio's Amish Country and have several Amish girls who help us with different aspects of our business. We now all have read the book and the remarks are very positive. On an ever increasing scale, the young Amish here are coming into contact with 'Englishers.' The story that Mary has chosen to write about is very true to what happens here on a regular basis. Mary has a really good feel for the Amish Community."
"We highly endorse her latest book. I'm sure it will be a hit not only for the English, but also here with the Amish Community as well."
--Carol Lee Shevlin, Inn Keeper, Simple Pleasures Bed and Breakfast

"I really enjoyed reading Never Far from Home. The story of the Amish girl and the English boy is a common storyline, however, I continue to enjoy the way Mary Ellis's characters love to be Amish and don't hurry to conform to the English lifestyle. Her writing style is so easy to read and her characters are so real and enjoyable. You just can't wait for Hannah to become pregnant. You wish it for her like she was a friend or family member. And the mistake Seth makes in planting more corn shows a human side to this character. Great read, can't wait for the story to continue."
--Marie Lawrie

    This is a very good book. The second in a series following a wonderful Amish family. I couldn't wait to see what happened to the family after I finished the first book. Once again I couldn't put the book down.

    Good Read

    Emma Miller is a young Amish girl who has finished school. While she still has her chores to do, she also has her own wool business. Emma works hard as she knows her mom needs to have surgery. The Amish community relies on a central fund where they all donate money to in case someone needs medical help.

    On a buggy ride to town to sell her wool along with her Aunt Hannah, Emma meets a young English sheep farmer named James. She finds him nice and is attracted to him, and he finds her attractive.

    After seeing him twice she decides on her 16th birthday to announces to her family she wants to take her full Rumspringe.

    That is where things become hard for her as they fall in love with each other. She loves being Old Amish and can't imagine a life not being Amish. Yet James is English and heading off for two years of college. He tells Emma to wait and he will find a way for them to be together.

    But can young love endure all the challenges? Can James really find a way for them to marry someday? I would recommend this book to all who love reading about the Amish. Also for new readers who have never read Amish fiction.
